Make a batch of these grilled cheese roll-ups ahead of time, for easy dinners and after-school snacks.
oz cream cheese (from 8-oz package), softened
cup Old El Paso™ mild salsa
slices whole wheat bread (approximately 1 loaf)
slices American cheese
In small bowl, mix cream cheese and salsa; set aside.
Using serrated bread knife, remove crusts from bread. Flatten bread squares with rolling pin. Spread 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese mixture on each square of bread, followed by 1 slice cheese. Roll up bread, pressing as you go, to form a secure roll.
In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Place rolls in skillet, starting seam side down, and cook until each side is golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towel-covered plate to cool.
To freeze, place cooled rolls on cookie sheet; place in freezer until solid. Place frozen rolls in quart-size resealable plastic freezer bag in freezer. To serve, remove desired number of rolls from bag, and reheat in microwave, oven or skillet until heated through.
Serve with extra Old El Paso™ salsa on the side for dipping.
Experiment with different cheeses. Mozzarella with pesto-cream cheese would be delicious!
